Over the years we have covered stories on a lot of physical modifications of classic systems. While some of the modifications add a new function to the system, other ones are strictly external. Some of these updated external changes are literally modern pieces of art. Today, we bring you a collection of photographs that give the Nintendo 64 system a brand new look that was inspired by “The Legend Of Zelda”, which is certainly a sight to see.
We all know that when the Nintendo DS first came out in 2004, that it was out of the box backwards compatible with the Nintendo Game Boy Advance. (Sadly, Game Boy Color and original Game Boy games weren’t so lucky.) However as the years have gone by, many of these early generation DS consoles have had hinge issues, causing some problems with the top screen. However while some gamers have upgraded to the latest offerings in the DS library, some may have an original DS with a broken hinge, and are looking for a new project to do with it. One user from Reddit has shown how such a handheld could be converted into “permanent Game Boy Advance mode”, calling it the GBALite.
When the original Wii Virtual Console came into play shortly after the consoles launch in 2006, third party video game consoles would have game offerings on the (then) new service. Games for Nintendo consoles were obviously included, but third party games for Sega consoles, the Commodore 64, and arcade cabinets were also emulated. One of the other consoles with offerings was the NEC TurboGrafx 16, in which 59 games were released in the US, and 119 games were released in Japan. In the United States, the Wii U has not been as supportive, where while PC Engine games were released in Japan, the USA has a total of zero offerings. However recently, it has been hinted that these games will finally be coming to the west.
MSX Title “Penguin Adventure” To Be Brought To The ColecoVision Super Game Module By Opcode Games; Pre-Orders Currently Being Accepted
Many of us out there are familiar with the video game “Antarctic Adventure”, which was released for the ColecoVision, Famicom and MSX computer series. That’s the game where you play the role of an Antarctic penguin, racing to disparate research stations owned by different countries in Antarctica. What others may realize is that a sequel to the game called “Penguin Adventure” was released, but only in Japan and throughout Europe. Opcode Games, who are the creators of the recently released “Super Game Module” have recently announced a new port of the game to the ColecoVision, that will take advantage of the new hardware abilities brought to the system thanks to the device.
We are going to have to go way back in our archives for this one! Back in November of 2012, RGN had reported about a new demonstration ROM image for a then upcoming game for the Virtual Boy called “Fishbone“. We hadn’t heard all that much about the game since then, however I am sure that there was a lot of development being worked on. All of the hard work has officially paid off, for the game is now available for purchase on actual Virtual Boy cartridge media, and we have the details.
